Rockers Pearl Jam stunned fans at a Portuguese music festival on Sunday by declaring the concert would be their “last in a long time”.
The Alive hitmakers were performing at the Optimus Alive festival in Lisbon at the weekend when frontman Eddie Vedder left devotees shocked and confused when he announced the band was going on an indefinite hiatus – without giving any further explanation.

Reading in Portuguese from a piece of paper, Vedder told the audience, “Thank you for coming to our last show. Not our last ever, but our last in a long time.”
